I received the book The Sinners by Sourabh Mukherjee from Writersmelon as a review copy. This book is a thriller set in a corporate world.
Vikram Oberoi is found dead in his penthouse. A few hours ago, his involvement in a sex scandal in NexGen Technologies made headlines across the world.
Who is behind the sinister conspiracy that destroyed Vikram Oberoi, the philandering India Head of NexGen? Rivals within and outside the firm? One of his many jilted lovers or the miffed wife? A mysterious conspirator laying out honey traps to sabotage his plans? Or, is it the ghost of a sinful past that continues to haunt the Oberois?
The Sinners is a fast-paced thriller with a shocking twist that unravels against the backdrop of corporate warfare, illicit relationships and ruthless seduction games.
The book starts with Vikram Oberoi of NexGen Technologies being found dead in his penthouse. And then the story goes into flashback.
Vikram Oberoi, a much married person, is a womaiser. He is having an affair with his secretary and does not shy away from one-night stands. So when a new girl, Sonal joins the company and catches his eye, he starts an affair with her and even wants to spend his whole life with her.
In the meantime, things are not going on well for the company, as they are losing all their deals to their arch rival. And then things start going bad for Vikram on the personal front as well.
This thriller revolves around a corporate setting with a lot many characters who keep popping in as the story progresses. Initially, I was a little lost with so many characters coming in but as the story moved further, I started enjoying the story. The plot has been designed in such a way that the suspense keeps building up till the end and I was finding it difficult to guess what provoked Vikram to do what he did.
The language is simple and the story is fast paced. The twists and turns kept me on the edge of my seat till I finished the book. The characters have been developed well and even the secondary characters have a role to play in the story.
DISCLAIMER: I received a copy of the book from Writersmelon in exchange for a honest review. I have not received any monetary compensation for the same.
